Abe needs to tread carefully here. He’s already losing badly needed foreign support for what nationalists like Noriaki Nakayama keep saying, should a “revision” remove or even lessen Japan’s apology, the results could be extremely damaging to Japan’s ability to face off China.

A re-affirmation of Japan’s guilt and heartfelt apology on the other hand could help counter China’s attempts to buddy up to South Korea and deal a hard blow to China’s incessant propaganda. It might also help Abe keep the ultra-nationalists from staying stupid – things.
